ARRI has announced a new “top-of-the-line” stabilised remote head, the 360 EVO.

Building on the SRH-360, it features 360-degree rotation on the roll axis as well as the pan axis, a “more robust” design, and remote system integration. A new GUI and multiple accessories are shared with the TRINITY 2.

Arri says that since the launch of TRINITY 2, operators have been “exploring the creative opportunities provided by its 360-degree rotation on the roll axis,” revolving around the optical center of the lens. The same tech has been scaled up for the ARRI 360 EVO three-axis stabilized remote head, “opening up new shot possibilities for dramas, commercials, and music videos. Even more dynamic roll-axis shots can be achieved by mounting the head to a crane, for example, or a cable cam above a live broadcast event.”

The 360 EVO runs on the same software platform as TRINITY 2, with the same GUI displayed on its touchscreen remote control panel. The two products also share cables, brackets, and SAM plates for mounting different cameras, and can be controlled by the same tools, such as ARRI’s Digital Remote Wheels DRW-1 and new Digital Encoder Head DEH-2.

LBUS connectivity enables “efficient digital and metadata workflows”, while the new software and GUI are focused on long-term Unreal Engine integration to facilitate virtual production. Plug-and-play control of the 360 EVO over the internet will be possible in future when using an authorised repeater cloud service.

First customer shipments of the 360 EVO, as well as upgrades for SRH-360 owners, will begin in Q1 2024.
